Now that the Games have closed, the flame extinguished, most anyone you ask in Vancouver will probably start describing the past two weeks like this: “Wow…That. Was. Crazy.” And, judging from the delirious celebration in the streets after USA vs. Canada, I’m pretty sure everyone means that in a good way.
At Saul Good, we certainly took some time to celebrate and enjoy the perks of having the Olympics in town. It was a (very) happy coincidence that the German Hospitality Haus, with its beers and brats, happened to be a short stroll from the office. Since it’s our philosophy that all good businesses relies on strong relationships, powerful connections, and creating meaningful and memorable experiences, we took it upon ourselves to attend a few events, gather with friends to watch the Games on TV, and spend a few late evenings making new international pals. All told, it was an unforgettable and tremendously exciting two weeks.
But the Olympics weren’t just fun and Games for us! We also had a few huge projects come through, including running the point for an uber-green packaging solution for the Official Replica Athlete Jerseys. We also learned a lot of lessons to help our corporate gift basket business grow!
Looking back, we’re so proud of how the Games and Vancouver shook off a rocky and tragic start to end up as a tremendously memorable, beautiful, and important chapter in this city’s history. Now that it’s over, we’re hard back at work with a lift in our step, recharged batteries, and the echo of cheering throngs still ringing in our ears.
Here’s hoping that you also had a great couple of weeks! We’re looking forward to connecting with everyone and swapping stories soon!
